The Backbencher can reveal that an admin of the Labour Party Forum, one of the main pro-Corbyn Facebook groups with 16,000 members, has previously shared vile anti-Semitic content including a video which praises Hitler. In 2015 Ayesha Ali, currently one of the group’s admins, shared a video from the far-right “Ancient Swastika” Facebook page, which claimed that Hitler was trying to “cleanse the world” of “liars and deceivers”.
The video asserted that the establishment “convinced the world that a man named Adolf Hitler was a madman, and we all grew up understanding that Hitler was a tyrant, that he was a madman, but I’m going to be honest with you, after doing some research on this I found out…that it was these liars and deceivers that Adolf Hitler was trying to cleanse the world of”. Later the same speaker adds that “Hitler adopted one of the oldest symbols of God’s consciousness on this planet. It’s called the Swastica”. The video also perpetuated the Nazi conspiracy theory that Germany was ‘stabbed in the back’ by its Jewish population during WWI, claiming that “they sold Germany down the river for no reason at all other than they wanted Palestine as a so called Jewish home”. It also promoted a number of conspiracy theories aimed at the Jewish Rothschild family, asserting that “Rothchilds and his ancestors have hand picked Presidents, crashed stock markets, bankrupted nations, orchestrated wars and sponsored the mass murder and impoverishment of millions”.
A screenshot of the video which Ayesha Ali shared which praised Hitler – if your constitution is strong enough the whole thing can be watched here (warning – it’s disgusting).
The Hitler sympathetic video was far from the only anti-Semitic content that Ayesha Ali has promoted on Facebook. In 2016 she wrote “Fucking BBC completely run by Zionist shits” and last year shared a post claiming that the Nazi “SS Set Up Training Camps for German Jews to Prep Them for Palestine…Jews and Nazis cooperated” (see below – click on the image to expand).
Ayesha has also shared a video on Facebook claiming that the USA is owned by the “Rothschilds Crime Syndicate” and a post by anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist David Icke claiming that Israel is trying to partition Syria as part of an expansionist “Greater Israel Project” (see below – click on either image to expand).
Incidentally this isn’t the first time we’ve reported on anti-Semitism by admins of the Labour Party Forum group. Another admin, Gary Smith, shared content claiming “extremist Israeli Jews” were behind the 9/11 attack.
